Twitter More Valuable As Chat – Not Writing An Essay
140 to 10,000 characters per tweet!
That is like going from a little chat to writing an essay. Is that what Twitter wants to become? It happened last month on Twitter. The feature is intended to provide users with more room to speak their minds without resorting to writing threads or multiple tweets.
However, the main timeline’s character limit will remain 280 characters, with additional text accessible via a “read more” button.
10,000 characters are like a 3 full-page Microsoft Word document and maybe another half page. (Depends on how long your words are).

Uniquely, Twitter was founded on short messaging and micro-blogging. Will making this possible change, change Twitter dramatically? Do you think it will make Twitter more valuable to users?

The tweets may be ordered by Twitter Bue subscribers. Then relevance rather than in reverse chronological order. That’s another thing Twitter has been experimenting with. I purchased the Twitter Blue subscription service to test it out last month.
More to come in future blogs about the subscription service, how it works, what it does, and if it is worth it. Will it make Twitter more valuable to you?
Full-Size Videos Now In Twitter Feed
Twitter’s updated immersive media viewer expands videos to full screen with a single click, allowing you to easily access the full, immersive viewing experience. To activate it, simply tap/click on a video in the Twitter app.
